Elvis fans won’t have to get All Shook Up over who’s driving back from Parkes this weekend thanks to a bus service from Orange to the Parkes Elvis Festival.
A bus will run from the Orange Visitor Information Centre to the festival on Friday, Saturday and Sunday morning and Return to Sender later those evenings.
For $45 Elvis lovers can jump on board the Mystery Train to attend the Elvis-themed street party and events, which includes workshops for children hosted by the original yellow Wiggle and Big Hunk O’ Love Greg Page, group singalongs and burlesque classes.
Kicking off on Wednesday, over 26,500 people are expected to attend the festival, more than doubling Parkes’ population.
The festival has run since 1993 on the second week of January to coincide with Elvis Presley’s birthday.
A street parade which includes Elvis-themed floats, look-alikes, vintage cars and marching bands is tipped as a festival highlight held on Saturday.
Bus times and details for purchasing tickets can be found on the Visit Orange website and Facebook page.
Organisers suggest getting in quickly as it Now or Never for ticket availability.
